About the Club . . .

We'd like to welcome you into our website and introduce you to the Eccles Caravan Owners Club. Eccles is one of the oldest and most respected names in British Caravanning, manufactured nowadays by Swift Leisure Group as part of their range of products.

The Eccles Caravan Owners Club is an independent club run by its members and the Club is thought to be the oldest single brand owners club and where all members have caravans of that brand. The original club was formed in 1938 though no records exist of the earlier club but the existing club was formed early in 1969.

Rallies are very informal, friendly affairs, a meeting of like-minded caravanners, many of whom have formed close friendships and new members are always made to feel welcome.

We are purely a social organisation and meet generally once a month at rally sites in different locations, generally in the Midlands/South West area, although we often rally elsewhere. Take a look at our rally programme for this year where you will find a mix of weekend breaks and longer holiday rallies.

If you're new to caravanning, joining a club is an excellent way of picking up tips from "older hands". We have members from most parts of England and Wales but sadly none at present in Scotland. although we have had holiday rallies there in the past. In recent years we have also had continental rallies to Bavaria, Lake Garda, Brittany and Rhineland/Luxembourg. Some rallies are held on commercial sites with all the normal facilities, some are held in basic rally fields, but they all have one thing in common - - a friendly welcome and the freedom to do your own thing.
